Description and Details
We are delighted to offer this magnificent Victorian solid silver sugar sifter spoon made by silversmith Francis Higgins in London, 1875.
As found with some of Higgins' fine pieces, this spoon is of no exception featuring an array of highly desirable and intricate decoration and embellishments.
Upon holding in hand, the overall heavyweight and quality of the silver are apparent, and unlike counterpart spoons, features an exceptionally sturdy build.
The decorations of the spoons are beautifully engraved with the handle featuring an asymmetric leaf design with a blank cartouche remaining unengraved.
The curvature of the handle also allows for ease of use and an elegant aesthetic design when placed upon a table or leaning against the side of a sugar bowl.
The bowl of the spoon features an ornate gilded surface with an intricated pierced 'quatrefoil' design.
A full set of English hallmarks are present on the reverse side of the handle.
Overall, this spoon is of excellent quality and finesse, ideal for uncompromising collectors whether be it for display or practical usage for an indulging experience with some sweets.
